Sydenham: Railbed Ramble

This easy-going and scenic route includes a trip down both the K&P and Cataraqui trails, and an ice-cream parlour rest stop.

Before or after leaving the town of Sydenham, be sure to explore and visit Truesdale’s General Store, which is the oldest shop still in business in Ontario. You’ll ride past farms and forests on this trip, past Loughborough Lake, before arriving at Limestone Creamery for a quick cold treat. From here, you’ll hop onto the K&P trail, which intersects with the Cataraqui Trail. Both trails paint a pretty picture of creeks, wetlands, and forests.
